    I work for a regional airline, as an FO. Yep. I'm poor compared to a 757 FO. This iPad I use for work is not company issue either. Christmas present from the family. And when I say family, I...

    What is in your flightbag?

    You missed the first sentence. That's my actual kitbag, presently. For simulation I just use the iPad for charts and simple calculations.

    For what it's worth, the flight attendants are not trained to use the radios. So getting talked down is only a matter of "will they figure out how to key the mike and turn on the speaker".

    No flashlight. I just use one of the two in the pit for inspections. Plenty of reading lights as well. I have seen some guys with those LED torches, but that costs money, and the company doesn't...

    Coming from real world experience and still logging hours, I agree. These big jets do not handle like in FS. Even PMDG standards of simulation there are some things they just can't simulate like...

    I would assume to use the identifiers, ex POL or JFK or BXK, etc. for VORs as well as intersections and airways you wish to fly. I'm not familiar with UK rules, but ICAO standard of filing uses...

    I thought you had to get the flight attendant to blow into the emergency inflation tube to get the autopilot to work properly?

    Thanks zippy! I'll look into these. I know I'm being a bit picky, but is there anything specifically for the Learjet and FSX?

    What is your fuel flow rate in cruise? Using math would determine if your present altitude isn't high enough for the range desired. Also, if the plane will not climb high enough at first, it is...

    It wasn't a windows installer, it was the installer that Flight1 uses, which I'm not sure how that is legal since they are one of a kind in a way. The icon for the installer was the same as other...

    Default Learjet Sound

    I'm looking for a replacement for the default Learjet sound. It just sounds too fake or overly engineered IMO. I did find shareware on the file library, but the installer crashes immediately. Does...

    Fog/Poor Visability

    Oh that makes sense. But that is still really low visibility, with CAT IIIa or b we are talking less that 1000' of visibility. I flew with a captain one night where the dispatcher released us to an...

    FYI, CAT II can go as low as 1400RVR and 80' TCH. My operator can only do 1600RVR and 100' due to limitations by the FAA. Guess the EMB145s don't do well that low to the ground. In case you're...

    He is correct, but that's about as low as you can get minus doing CAT II or III approaches. Actually, the ceiling should be at 200'. 100' is for CAT II. I just did CAT II training. My mistake. ...

    What visibility are you setting? 2 miles? If you want a challenge set to 1/2 mile or less with overcast ceiling at 100' above threshold.

    FC3 isn't as good as the A10C module. FC3 is more like a simplistic version of a combat sim. If you want something highly simulated, the A10 is the way to go. Lots of sophisticated targeting...

    This is most likely the culprit. Density altitude is extremely important with light piston aircraft. Years ago when I was doing my oral for my private, (I didn't study this topic as carefully as I...

    Out of curiosity, have these particular aircraft been tweaked or changed any drag characteristics? Nothing in the configuration file has changed, correct?
